Our BEng in Chemical Engineering is accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE).
- NSS 2017
Chemical engineers develop innovative processes to turn raw materials into useful products like fuels, plastics, foods and medicines. They are also leading efforts to make the modern world a cleaner, safer and more sustainable place to live.
On this course you will learn the key set of chemical engineering principles and understand how to use them for a huge range of applications, such as eliminating harmful emissions of greenhouse gases or turning living cells into tiny factories for making life-saving drugs.
We are proud to be the only university in the country to have achieved a perfect 100% score for overall student satisfaction in the recent 2017 National Student Survey (NSS 2017) in the subject area of Chemical, Process and Energy Engineering.
